“Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:12 Wherefore - Since everlasting destruction attends your sloth, everlasting glory your diligence, I will not neglect always to remind you of these things - Therefore he wrote another, so soon after the former, epistle. Though ye are established in the present truth - That truth which I am now declaring.
2Pe 1:12 Wherefore. The language that follows anticipates his speedy decease (2Pe 1:15).
